One of the most beautiful and visually stunning films I've ever seen. The story is very simple and presented in an old-fashioned way. But it's also extrmely moving. I highly recommend it, but bring the tissues.
Saw this over the Christmas break. I agree, Patcat, the cinematography was amazing, as was the "acting" of Joey, the horse, and Emily Watson, who I love and haven't seen for awhile.
It wasn't as much of a tearjerker as I was expecting. I think because the score, while beautiful, was so overdone and constant, that it left no room for distinguishing between a truly emotional scene and a regular one.
However I enjoyed it overall, and also recommend it.
